A Secret Place

A Secret Place

A Secret Place

A Secret Place: a hallowed chamber,
Apart from worldly snares;
A place where I may feel my Lord
And understand He cares ...

A place where all anxiety flees,
Far away and fast;
Where love can flow so pure and free,
And all my burdens pass ...

And there, where morning light first falls
And warms the inner heart;
Where evening light still lingers ~
Setting secret things apart.

I learn, from out the heart of God,
Cherished deeds that He holds dear.
I take the time and listen,

For, I love to feel Him near.

I’m taught the secrets of His heart.
I count the hours gold
And thank Him for His precious love,
That’s mine to have and hold!
